07:23 AM ET 10.23 | Coming off a loss in the NLCS, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly's week hasn't quite become any sort of relaxing offseason. Facing a tenuous future even after leading the Dodgers to the NLCS, [Mattingly] hopes to return to Los Angeles. But if he cannot broker an agreeable arrangement with Dodgers management, Mattingly would be open to considering the Nationals' managerial vacancy, his agent Ray Schulte said. "We're hoping the Dodgers have a great conversation with Donnie and he continues to manage out there," Schulte said. "If that's not the case, he's aware that organizations like Washington and Chicago and Seattle would be great organizations, too." Mattingly has managed the Dodgers for the past three seasons.

Oh yeah, the Cubbies and Mariners are SO promising.
At least the Nats had some success in 2012.

this is a case of wishful thinking on the agents part, we all know this...right? Donnie ballgame won't get another managerial job, he just isn't qualified and he's over matched by his peers. For crying out loud Donnie, you're a hitting coach, accept it and move on. When the Yankees passed on your services in favor of Joe Giraldi, that should have been your message. The only teams I see Donnie ballgame managing are the Marlins and Astros, that it. Two circus act teams. Too much talent in DC for Donnie to mismanage, Cincinnate too! As for the Cubs, Theo is to smart to bring on an under experienced guy like Donnie. That's it dude, the jig is up

He was the hitting coach for a team that couldnt hit, so they made him the manager. Classic Peter Principle at work.
